The Faroe Islands

 

elin-d-403786.jpg

Marooned in the North Atlantic between Norway and Iceland, the Faroe Islands provide a dramatic and beautiful backdrop of Útilív Adventure Festival.The first ever running, music and adventure based festival to be held on the Faroe Islands, the festival combines high-octane activities such as trail running, rock climbing, kayaking, and mountaineering, with an exquisitely remote setting.

Separated by narrow fjords, the 18 piece jigsaw of volcanic islands are 62° North, covering 113km North to South, and 75km East to West. The geography and nature of the islands is an adventurers dream - vertical cliff faces, piercing ridge-lines, black sandy beaches, dramatic waterfalls, and secluded lagoons. 

Our friends at the outdoor shop Útilív have compiled this helpful directory around Tórshavn.
